I have a managed property named "SoftwareDevelopmentOWSUser" inside our SharePoint online tenant, and when i access the managed property i can see that it is not associated with any crawled property, as follow:- enter image description here

While if i access the crawl property i can see that it is associated with the above managed property, as follow:- enter image description here

so which screen is valid? and why i am getting confusion results?

From the official article: The search schema displays the name of auto-generated managed properties and their mappings to crawled properties in grey in the search schema. The search schema doesn't hold the settings of the managed auto-generated managed properties. The settings exist, but they're hidden from the search schema.

Manage the search schema in SharePoint Online for your reference:

    It is by designer that the managed property mappings to crawled property. But they're hidden from the search schema. Commented Apr 28, 2020 at 12:12
  • so to know which crawl property is mapped to a managed property then i need to start the search from the Crawl Property section?

  • Yes. Or you can add the mapping in managed property manually. Commented Apr 29, 2020 at 2:42
